I use it for several years on stage and even
if we care about your mouth because your box
looks like a calculator it is comparable to some TR (505?).
the entire box is rather in the mediums.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this drum machine in a store
secondhand connu.à good time (1999) I paid
220 francs. the seller I was introduced as a metronome
ideal to train on guitar. in fact it is actually
although a programmable drum machine and super easy to reach.
this was my first drum machine so my opinion is bathed
good feeling but this machine provides.

A very nice little BAR

Boss DR-220A Dr. RhythmPublished on 01/12/11 at 12:45
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
11 + accent tones - 32 preset patterns in, 32 others use - 8 128-chaining patterns.
Connectors: output jack mono 6.35 - headphone mini-jack mono - trigger input and output mini-jack - Input DC 9V 300mA.
239x75x31mm, 350g with batteries.

UTILIZATION

Very simple, very clear manual and small enough to fit in the pouch.

SOUNDS

Bass drum - snare - hi-hat open and closed - toms high, medium and low - crash and ride cymbals - rim shot, clap
12-bit digital sound, not dynamic. Can be used to focus more nuance, but it affects all sounds the same pace.
On leaving, I found the realistic sounds. Today ........ ahem ... But rather than words, here recording the demo song of the DR-220A:

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased in 1988 to 1200F (180 €), replacing a Korg KPR77 whose sounds were too artificial, this has made our small BAR compositions more punchy. They had hesitated with a TR-505, 1.5 times more expensive at the time, but it did not trig out, essential to synchronize the arpeggiator our Korg Mono-Poly.
For cons, the black point of this is that BAR has no way of transferring memory (for MIDI, tape, or card), so when it is full ... you delete them or buy another .
I do not remember what happened to this county, can be sold to the group disbanded.
I recently purchased a (nostalgic?), 50 euros with cover and instruction in the classifieds of AF. I do not use it for new compounds, but rather as a notepad rhythm. I plugged into the auxiliary input of my car stereo, it allows me to compose noon. I just need more than a Casio PT20 and I have a real studio in the car!
In short, it is a small drum very nice ...
